THERE’S A GREEN SWARD CALLED THE OVAL (the life and times of a football stadium)
by SAM ROBINSON –
OUT NOVEMBER 24TH 2016.
So, if you want to know where some of the guns from the Clyde Valley were hidden? where the Detroit Cougars purchased their Panama hats? Who designed the Glentoran badge? What it was like on the nights when Benfica and the Rangers came to town? what was to befall 786 people travelling to Belfast outside the stadium on a misty January morning in 1945? How it felt to stand on the terraces on Morgan Day or why a family of French gypsies appeared at the Oval in 1894? Well it’s all in there, amongst a myriad of other tales.
There’s a Green Sward Called the Oval is out in time for the Christmas market and would make a great gift for the Glentoran supporter inyour life or for those with just a love for the game, or with an affinity forthe east end of the town
